John Wick unleashes international revenge in the newest trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2. The film stars Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, and John Leguizamo.
Wick Goes Off
John Wick’s life is tough. The last time audiences saw him, he had lost everything including his wife and his dog. So, he exacted revenge on the members of the criminal underground who wronged him. But not everyone is on board with his coming out of retirement. John Wick: Chapter 2 finds the one man army traveling to Rome in order to atone for the sins of the first film. See, he made a blood oath to The Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) that he would never come out of retirement. Now that he has, he must fulfill his blood oath, or take out anyone who knows about it. Judging by the latest trailer, it appears he opts for the latter. Check it out below!
There is a lot for action junkies to be excited about in this new trailer. Of course, this should come as no surprise since Chad Stahelski, the first film’s director, is back in the saddle. And while all the action is outstanding, the world of John Wick is incredibly cool. The assassin hotel from the first movie appears to stretch into the whole of Rome here. Even though the assassin society was a divisive element of the first movie, I think it really works. The potential for spin-offs/prequels/comics is huge. Also, it’s great to see the irony surrounding Keanu Reeves falling away. The guy has been a part of so many great franchises from Bill and Ted to The Matrix. Heck, he even went out of his way to cameo in Keanu.
What do you think? Do you think John Wick: Chapter 2 has the potential to be a new action classic, or was his first adventure lightning in a bottle? Let us know in the comments!
